http://theagnosticprint.net/defining...photography-2/ A very interesting article that discusses the archival standard in photography. So many terms misused so often that we can have a nice conversation about this stuff and both go away not knowing anything at all. Am familiar with Conservation Framing and know some in the photo community(and possibly others) call it 'Archival Framing". Any real definitions and standards that one can apply and rely on? As it is now the neighbor kid who prints on cheap inks with his $30 dollar printer that claims the prints will last 30 days can call them "Archival" because they last the time the maker claims they will. Maybe Chris Paashe(sp?) and others more solidly grounded in the science can chime in here. Would like to be able to talk about this with actual knowledge rather than repeating BS with no real foundation.
